As winter comes, you need to rush to buy the thick and heavy duvets. Duvets are warm and provide insulation against the draughts and keep you warm at night. This leads to a comfortable sleep and wakes you up fresh and active. Duvets are warner and thicker than the comforters. They come in a wide range of sizes, colors, and designs. Most important of all is the size of the duvet, for example, you cannot add a single duvet to a king-size or super king-size bed because it’ll create an unbalanced and ugly look.
For a king-size or super king-size bed, it is best if you use a king-size or super king-size duvet. It’ll create perfect bedding and help you attain the best possible look. So if you are up to buying the new duvets for your king-size or super king-size bed, follow our guide below to find out the best and high-quality duvets for your bed.
When it comes to buying the duvets, there are a few important factors to be considered prior to buying. These factors include the fabric material, padding/filling of the duvet, weight, tog rating, thread count, color scheme and the design of the duvets. Let’s get into details…
Duvets have three layers, from which the upper and the bottom layers are made from fabric. Duvets come in many fabric materials. Each material has a particular characteristic. These fabric materials can be either natural or synthetic. Natural fabrics include cotton and its types and the linen, whereas synthetic fabric materials include polyester and microfiber. All of these fabric materials are soft and have a uniform texture. But the softness and the level of thermal insulations vary. In addition to that, they vary in price and durability.
If you are an asthma patient or hypoallergenic person, we recommend you to go for the synthetic duvets.
filling or padding is the middle layer of the duvet. This layer is responsible for the warmth and the thermal insulation of the duvet. Just like the fabric materials filling materials are also classified as natural and synthetic materials. These materials include hollow fibre, microfibers, cotton, and wool.
Hollow fibre and microfiber are the synthetic materials and are recommended of patients who suffer from respiratory disorders.
Tog rating is defined as the amount of thermal insulation provided by the duvet. The tog rating varies from 1.5 to 15. 1.5 is the lowest rating at the tog scale, whereas 15 is said to be the highest tog rating. The higher the tog rating, the warmer the duvet will be.
Duvets can be categorized as the summer, fall, and the winter duvets. Tog rating varies with each season. As for summer season, tog rating varies from 1.5 to 4, for fall the rating varies from 7.0 to 10.5 and for winter the heavily weighted duvets fall from 10.5 to 15.
Thread count is the total number of threads woven both widthwise and the lengthwise. Thread count also varies like the tog rating. It varies from 200 to 1000. The higher the thread count, the softer and durable fabric material will be. Also, know that the duvets with higher thread count are expensive. So if you have a limited budget, we advise you to buy the one having a thread count between 200 to 350.
Design and color schemes
Other than all the above factors, design and color schemes are important to consider. The color scheme should complement the interior of your bedroom and your bedding set to create a balanced color look. If you are professional or have an in-depth knowledge of designing, go for the color contrast. To create a perfectly balanced look, we advise you to choose that color for the duvet that is present in the least amount in your bedding. On the other hand, if you are just a beginner, go for the plain and neutral duvets because they look well with all bedding sets.
As far as the design for duvets is concerned, mostly duvets come plain, so if you want to add more drama go for the printed duvet covers instead of looking for a printed duvet itself.
